This article discusses changes in teaching literacy skills and how the constructivist approach is becoming increasingly popular. This approach has teachers act primarily as guides for learning, where students are given a more involved role in their own learning. Librarians are also attempting to find ways in which they could apply something similar within their own libraries. Based on the reading, it seems like this subject is one that will only gain more importance because they seem to create an ideal model for sustained self-learning.
